    I thought Lawrence sucked. All that phony crying and no tears?
    Bale was very good. Jeremy Renner was good. Amy Adams looked good.

    I just don't see what the fascination was/is.

    Maybe I just enjoyed the Lawrence performance because it was like a clever parody of one of my past relationships. :embar:
    I agree with you about Renner.

    I will say that each of these outfits is kind of awesome in its own way:

    Soooo, caught a B-film on TV the other night that I couldn't stop watching-- Kick Ass. Nerdy kid dresses like a superhero, finds himself in superhero situations. A pretty good comic book type of film, nothing serious to be taken, an all around entertaining no-brainer. Highly recommended.

    That's why they made Kick Ass 2.

    Entertaining, great cast and good to see Bryan Singer return. And just like it was nice to get a trip to the 60's in First Class, it's fun to get a tour of the 70's here (a slight change from the 80's of the original comic, but supposedly the next movie Apocalypse will take place there).

    Yet it somehow managed to be slightly disappointing to me - too high expectations I guess :confused:

    Quicksilver was fun.

    Satisfyingly suspenseful; ridiculously ludicrous.

    Agreed. I don't think anybody but Neeson could have pulled that role off so effectively. He's a badass for a 100 year old guy.


    That movie was good, ending was a little out there, but I really liked it too.

    Also, Anchorman 2 was complete crap. I don't think I laughed once. And I enjoyed the first one, and I still think Step-Brothers is fucking hilarious.

    Cheers man! Your reviews seem really in depth and on point. It is gruesome at times, but that isn't distasteful, I don't think anyway. I found it more intriguing and I found myself questioning the characters more than anything, but I suppose I need to watch the rest of it.

    Godzilla: ridiculous good fun, with some truly amazing set pieces. Very moody and atmospheric, in a great way. The HALO jump scene in particular was visually stunning, and I'm pretty sure that the finale is the GREATEST MONSTER BATTLE EVAH. A truly dopey storyline, which is almost a requirement, but I'm pissed that they completely wasted Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche. I mean, how the hell do you cast JB in a movie and kill her three minutes in?!? Hopefully this is the last movie we'll see that Kick-Ass guy in; he's grown into a bit of a thug. I enjoyed the IMAX immersion but felt like the 3D was almost non-existent. 2.5 Destroyed Cities out of 4

    Francis Ha: Really, really good slice-of-life film. It ranged from hilarious to grim effectively, and I found the characters, plot and setting completely believable. 4 Socially Smoked Cigarettes out of 4

    Admissions: working in the higher education software market I was really hoping to like this, but the plot was ludicrous, the depiction of an admissions office was well beyond a caricature, and the characters were uniformly obnoxious. As someone pointed out, Tina Fey's cleavage is the only redeeming quality. 1.5 Common Apps out of 4

    Have seen the following recently:
    Neighbors - had some good laughs
    Godzilla - entertaining but it's a one time watch
    Xmen days of future past - awesome
    Line survivor - pretty good but sad

    @in stitches saw it a bit back, honestly I was always aware of how bad things were and knew exactly what to expect with this movie. I agree that the acting was superb by everyone. I think the movie maybe opening some eyes to others who maybe weren't as aware of how harsh things were is a great thing.

    It's a David Lynch movie not directed by David Lynch. I loved it.
